Troy offensive line coach Matt Moore and Louisville Cardinals running backs coach Chad Scott have joined Neal Brown’s coaching staff in Morgantown.
The university announced the addition of Moore on Friday afternoon, naming the 2016 Broyles Award nominee West Virginia’s new offensive line coach.
Moore served as the Trojans’ offensive coordinator and offensive line coach in each of Brown’s four seasons at Troy, and the two worked together during Brown’s time at Texas Tech and his first stint with the Trojans in 2006.
In 2017, Moore’s offensive line finished No. 6 nationally in offensive line efficiency and No. 12 in fewest sacks allowed, and four linemen earned All-Sun Belt Conference honors, including left tackle Antonio Garcia. Garcia went on to be selected No. 85 overall in the NFL draft by the New England Patriots, marking the highest selected offensive lineman in conference history.
Moore will inherit an offensive line anchored by returning starters Colton McKivitz at right tackle and Josh Sills at left guard.
On Saturday, the West Virginia athletic department announced the hiring of Chad Scott as an “assistant football coach” with an official title to be named later.
Scott joins the Mountaineers after being named Louisville’s running backs coach under new head coach Scott Satterfield on January 4th. The move will reunite Scott with Neal Brown for the first time since Brown’s stint as Kentucky Wildcats offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014. The two also worked together as assistants at Texas Tech and Troy.
Scott served as tight ends coach at North Carolina since 2016, and was part of an offensive staff that oversaw the establishment of more than 40 individual and team records for the Tar Heels, including passing yards and passing yards per game.
Scott will have a full stable of running backs to work with this coming season, as the Mountaineers return all four of backs that saw action in 2018.
Scott’s Twitter bio currently lists him as “Co-Offensive Coordinator/Running Backs Coach” for the Mountaineers.
